We’re offering you a secure way to save money and receive high interest with zero fees. Saving money can be difficult but the AutoSave option makes it easier than ever.
By enabling AutoSave, each outgoing payment will be rounded up to the nearest € and the difference will be put in your Savings Account. This feature is available for Easy Savings, Easy Bank, Easy Money, and Easy Green subscription plans. Keep in mind, Easy Savings users can only have a Savings account. Be aware that this account is specifically for savings, so you will only have access to one Savings Account and won’t be able to order any card or use the account to make day-to-day payments. You can also withdraw up to 2 times per month.

Local Currency / Local IBAN sub-account
As the bank of The Free, we want you to feel secure using your money everywhere you go 🌎 With the features of Local IBANs and Local Currencies, bunqers can easily bank like locals all across Europe. What’s the difference between them you’ll ask?
Local IBANs are operating in Euro based on the local Dutch, German, French, and Spanish banking metrics. Keep in mind that if you reside in Germany, France, Spain or Ireland, your first and any new sub-accounts you create will automatically be assigned an IBAN according to your location unless you specifically open a Local IBAN sub-account.
Local Currencies allow you to spend and save in one of our 16 available currencies. Your IBAN will be a GB one since the foreign currency is held in the UK. This feature is only available for bunqers residing in 🇳🇱 The Netherlands, 🇩🇪 Germany, 🇪🇸 Spain, 🇮🇹 Italy, 🇫🇷 France, 🇮🇪 Ireland.
